A while back I told you about Nielsen Home Scan Consumer Panel. Their program is so popular that the open spots always fill up VERY quickly, so you’ll want to Request Your Scannner and Apply quickly for this one!
So many of us have signed up in the past and gotten an immediate “waiting list” type of response. Don’t let this discourage you! This seems to be their standard answer and many of us have gotten emails within a week of submitting, letting us know that our scanners were being shipped. Some have reported that they received their scanners without ever getting that follow up email!
The Nielsen company is a global information and media company with leading market positions and recognized brands in marketing information, media, business publications and trade shows. They are a privately held company, active in more than 100 countries.
As a member, they send you a hand-held scanner you will keep as long as you’re an actively participating panel member. This is what separates them from other “survey” type companies. You will actually use this scanner on your normal shopping trips and just scan in what you are purchasing. My girls just love to scan our items in each week after our trips to the grocery store.
By scanning, you’ll inform them about your purchases in all types of stores. Once a week, your hand-held scanner will transmit this information to them free of charge. You do NOT have to pay for the data transfer.
You’ll then accumulate points that you can redeem for gift cards, electronics, household items, jewelry, toys, and more! Getting things for FREE that I would normally have to buy = money maker to me! Reducing the amount of cash going out is never a bad thing!
Once you become a NCP panel member all you have to do is scan and send them your household purchase information every week with a handheld scanner that they provide. For each week of the month NCP receives your purchase information, you will earn one entry into the Monthly Sweepstakes where you can win a $500 American Express Rewards Card. That’s up to FOUR entries every month! Every month, 25 panel members win!
And that’s not all… Every quarter an additional 40 panel members win a $500 American Express Rewards card just by sending purchase information in every week of a month.
This has always been a Frugal Fabulous Finds Recommended Money Maker!
